Environmental Protection in Forestry – Roles and Responsibilities

New guidance was published last month providing information on the roles and responsibilities for environmental protection in forestry.

The guide is aimed at Contractors, Forest Works Managers and Landowners.

The guide was prepared by the Forest Industry Environment Group, a group founded by Confor and representatives from across the forest industry to advocate and facilitate high standards of environmental practice and compliance across the sector.

The guide builds on roles set out in FISA’s ‘Managing Health and Safety in Forestry’ to provide information to help deliver those responsibilities.

Copies can be viewed and downloaded from the Confor website (here) or on the Tilhill Contractor’s Portal (here).
